Supermodel and Lip Sync Battle cohost Chrissy Teigen is making a jaw-dropping return for the 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. Chrissy welcomed her first child, daughter Luna, with singer/actor John Legend last April, and this year, it’s all about loving all the ways that changes your body.
The 31-year-old NY Times bestselling author of Cravings was on location on Sumba Island in Bali last year, just six months after giving birth. Although Chrissy’s stunning looks landed her on SI Swimsuit pages every year since 2010, the notorious jokester was at first apprehensive because of the difficulties she experienced getting her post-baby body right and tight. (At least we know she has the same struggles we do. We feel you, Chrissy!) The new mom said the photoshoot was all about “embracing the changes.”
Chrissy dominated the shoot with brightly colored bikinis that showed off just how hard she’s been working, and also gave a glimpse of how motherhood has empowered her with confidence. “As a mother it’s nice to be able to be back in your element and it’s important to my well-being that I come out and I’m able to do this and do something I’m proud of,” Chrissy revealed in an exclusive clip from the shoot.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue hits stands February 15.
